Online, Instructor Led
Authentic Leadership Development for Health and Safety Professionals is a series of courses designed to help leaders committed to advancing health and safety can learn how best to navigate today’s evolving health and safety landscape. The series is comprised of three (3) leadership development courses that accelerate professional growth based on extensive body of evidence-based research, which supports the models and methods used. The courses are designed to cultivate leadership knowledge, skills, and capabilities important to the success of health and safety leaders and participants are provided experiential learning opportunities for increasing critical leadership skills. The series begins with discussions of foundational concepts, tools, and practices across all levels of professional development in the health and safety field, and then covers using those concepts, tools, and practices in an organization.
Fostering Positive Psychological Capital & Emotional Effectiveness for Health and Safety Professionals
People, and how they feel about their work, can have a very significant impact on how they emotionally engage in the workplace each and every day. Today’s safety leaders need to understand stress, emotional labor, and the role of emotions in order to design a healthy workplace for the 21st century. This course will provide opportunities to examine, explore, and practice positive ‘resource’ approaches for increasing individual and group levels of motivation, inclusivity and emotional effectiveness with the ultimate goal of fostering a safe work environment. Participants will take a self-rater survey to discover what constitutes their positive psychological strengths and potential areas for development.
This course serves as the key required course for individuals enrolling in the joint UW DEOHS CE/OHWC Total Worker Health Certificate Program. Individuals not seeking the TWH Certificate may enroll and attend the course as a standalone.
Series courses are virtual and instructor led on Tuesday afternoons, 3:00pm-5:30pm Pacific Time.
